Agility, Adaptability and Flexibility

three key factors for Supply Chain Planning

In the last decades the manufacturing landscape has undergone a major transformation in terms of products variety available on the market. This change is largely due to the fact that companies, in order to safeguard their market share, are forced nowadays to diversify their brands and products to better respond to the preferences and the growing customization needs of their customers. Product portfolio diversification, combined with a gradual extension of supply chains, that more often do not include actors with very different sizes and geographical locations, has progressively increased the complexity of Supply Chain Management processes.

 

Today, as a result, companies must become more agile and flexible in order to better respond to customers’ needs. To do this, companies need to change and to evolve their manufacturing strategy, moving from Smart Manufacturing to Smart Planning. To better manage this change, it is essential to develop appropriate tools for Change Management. These tools must contemplate the rationalization of Supply Chain processes, offer an appropriate support to facilitate the introduction and use of new models and IT procedures and for the adoption of monitoring performance tools. Together, these activities will create a virtuous cycle of continuous improvement, ensuring that the change process brought on by the introduction of technological innovations is accompanied by the right skills and workers knowledge. Considering this continuous push, the need companies have to introduce intelligent tools to manage and optimize Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) processes will become unescapable. These instruments must ensure appropriate agility levelsadaptability over demand, flexibility of re-planning, and plans changeability, during all planning processes and on all nodes of the production and distribution chain.
